In our second buzzITtalk brief, we’re tackling an emerging buzzword in the logistics space, “Hyperlocal Logistics.” At face value, hyperlocal logistics isn’t a novel idea, but rather a rebadging of the maker movement – but digging deeper, one quickly realizes that the gig economy is driving a solution for local delivery that is effectively challenging the established 3PL and logistics operator’s status quo as delivery kings. We’re joined by Joe Oliaro, Managing Director, Global Corporate Services, eCommerce/3PL Advisory at Newmark Knight Frank as he lends his expertise in e-Commerce and logistics to help us quickly understand this new buzzword.
